Phantom: A New Alex Hawke Novelby Ted Bell
Synopses & Reviews
“[Hawke is] a secret agent who takes you into the danger zone with a ballsy wit that had me hooked.”
“Ted Bell puts a capital A in adventure….Commander Bond might choke on his martini next to Bells superlative Alex Hawke.”
Ted Bells remarkable literary creation, counterspy Alex Hawke, has been called, “strong, shrewd, and savvy, with an aplomb not seen since James Bond” (NPR). Hes back in the explosive blockbuster Phantom, on a breathtaking hunt for a madman about to unleash a terrifying new Artificial Intelligence-powered super weapon on the world. Another superb espionage thriller by a true, New York Times bestselling master of the fictional spy game, Bells Phantom explores a dark side of science while delivering non-stop action, as Hawke races across the globe in order to prevent a coming apocalypse—and the millions of fans of Bells Warlord, Tsar, and Spy will be breathless every perilous step along the way.
Visitors at an American theme park look on in horror as their carefree holiday is transformed in an instant into near chaos. In the skies over the Midwest, the pilot of a USAF F-15 inexplicably loses control of his jet, endangering the very important lives in an accompanying aircraft. Suddenly, for no apparent reason, technology is in open revolt.
For counterspy Alex Hawke and his MI6 colleague, the brilliant former inspector Ambrose Congreve, the mission is clear: to get to the root of a terrifying series of unexplained "malfunctions." But how do you fight a phantom—an enemy you cannot see? Cyber-warfare has been declared, and the hunt is leading Hawke on a breakneck race across the globe—on the trail of a villainous megalomaniac who may have created the perfect weapon: a devastating Artificial Intelligence nightmare that could shift the geopolitical balance of power for all time.
